Matthew Wade stresses on his match winning abilities

The Australian wicket-keeper batsman, Matthew Wade, who is colour blind, has shown confidence that he will be able to spot Pink ball when he plays the third Test of the series against South Africa at Adelaide from November 24 as he says, “I think I’ve improved, obviously,” Wade said on Monday (November 21). “I wasn’t playing well enough at the time to be picked as a wicketkeeper in Test cricket and now I have been picked as a Test wicketkeeper,” he said. “There’s always a lot of talk about keeping and batting and the skill set, but I’ll just come and do my best and contribute the best I can for the team. It’s not about me.”

“There’s always a lot of talk about keeping and batting and the skill set, but I’ll just come and do my best and contribute the best I can for the team. It’s not about me.

“You’ve just got to get used to it. I think it’s trying to get it out of your mind, I can see the colour of the ball, I pick it up. It’s just at times it takes a little bit longer to work out the depth of where it’s coming,” he added.

Matthew Wade has been recalled to the Test squad after a brief period of three years. He has been called in after a wild axing from newly appointed interim selection committee by the Australian cricket board. Wade has replaced the underperforming wicketkeeper Peter Nevill who is pretty good when it comes to keeping wickets but his downward sloping performance with the bat have gone against him.

Last year, Wade played with the pink ball in a Sheffield Shield game for Victoria whereas Chris Rogers gave it a miss due to colour blindness issue.
